Constructed of 45% recycled wool fleece, you can feel good about the sourcing of the material for your favorite sweater.

Not quite a sweatshirt, and not quite a coat, the Smartloft-X 60 Hoodie splits the difference between the two winter wears. The primary insulation for this hoodie is 60g proprietary wool. The hood and bottom opening of the top offer elastic closures to keep the cold out and the heat in. Zip front pockets are there to hold all the things — or just your hands.
You can’t just run any old pair of socks inside your ski boots. They need to be thin, warm, and, in the best-case scenario, the same pair you wore when you did your boot fit.

Constructed of 52% wool, the brand says these socks are made to move freely and keep your feet cool thanks to body-mapped zones of mesh for ventilation.

Elegance meets functionality in the Shadow Pine Cable V-Neck Sweater. Constructed from sustainably sourced merino wool, this drop-shoulder sweater is more of a lifestyle accessory than it is for sport, but you’ve got to look good off the mountain too.
You didn’t think Smartwool just made sweaters, did you? No way — merino wool can be worn all over, and the brand’s 150 Print Boxer Briefs are here to keep you warm and comfortable.
